VIDEO: The Future of Race in Higher Education

National Association of Scholars

The Supreme Court’s upcoming decision on the UNC and Harvard cases has the potential to upend the existing system of racial preferences in college admissions. Regardless of the decision, the damage done to American higher education by racial preferences will not be reversed overnight. Given the current racial animosity on campus, what does the future look like? Is there any hope for reconciliation, or will students forever be exposed to a toxic and increasingly racially segregated university?

This event features Jonathan Butcher, the Will Skillman Senior Research Fellow in Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation; Renu Mukherjee, a Paulson Policy Analyst at the Manhattan Institute whose work addresses a range of topics on affirmative action and race in higher education; and Ilya Shapiro, a Constitutional Law and Supreme Court expert.
